Designer Tia Adeola debuts her sumptuous new line in "Le Noir Est Beau (Black is Beautiful)": a fashion film and continued exploration into Renaissance art and historical studies. The film features an all-Black female cast including rapper and songwriter Flo Milli and R&B vocalist Paloma Ford.

Out of Ataria Pictures, "Black is Beautiful," directed by Nina Meredith, was created as a celebration of Black women, Black culture, and Black fashion, fused with a classical art narrative that frequently leaves them out. Directed through the lens of Renaissance epicureanism and indulgent luxury, "Black is Beautiful" serves as both a social commentary and fantastical escapism.
